Beyonce and Jay Z Release First Public Statement About Elevator Fight With Solange

(AllHipHop News) According to the Carters, all’s well that ends well with that family. Today (May 15th), Jay Z and Beyonce releases their first public statement since the footage of Solange’s fight with Jay Z at a Met Gala afterparty surfaced.

In the statement sent to The Associated Press, the couple addresses the speculation over the cause of the fight, but maintains that “our family has worked through it.” While not stating what the cause was, the statement does address Jay Z and Solange taking culpability for the incident:

 Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. 

The statement also dispels the rumors that Solange was intoxicated during the elevator incident. The statement continues to read “families have problems and we’re no different.”

Read the full statement below:

As a result of the public release of the elevator security footage from Monday, May 5th, there has been a great deal of speculation about what triggered the unfortunate incident. But the most important thing is that our family has worked through it. Jay and Solange each assume their share of responsibility for what has occurred. They both acknowledge their role in this private matter that has played out in the public. They both have apologized to each other and we have moved forward as a united family. The reports of Solange being intoxicated or displaying erratic behavior throughout that evening are simply false,” the statement continued. “At the end of the day families have problems and we’re no different. We love each other and above all we are family. We’ve put this behind us and hope everyone else will do the same.

    Done, and done.. hopefully. Next story please

    What else did people expect to hear? “The Truth?” Like they’ll ever really say. Count on it resurfacing again at some point. People don’t react that way over something petty. He definitely did something.

    • TheOnlyCoop

      Maybe he was just being and a$$. It looked like while in the elevator he kept picking at her. I think that why Bey turned to him and said something, that’s why he started pointing to himself like “this is my fault?” and then she walked back in the elevator and split them up like two little kids.

      • rocnation30



    Beyonce is such a robot. If you had just been yourself and open from the jump this story wouldn’t have been so big

  • “statements about possible intoxication are simply false…”
    just like if we only heard about this fight instead of actually seeing it, that too would be simply false….

    • TheOnlyCoop

      So she just walked into the elevator and flipped out. But she showed no signs of this earlier in the night.

    • Kweli

      You better believe it!

      And what the hell is Jay apologizing for? This image mess is a trip.

        Aint nobody buy that sh!t after it came out and heard how wack it was. A company bought 1 million beforehand.

      • johnblacksad

        ok… if you say so.

        What’s blinder than the man who doesn’t want to see?
        I wonder

  • Thanx Nerve

    If I was them, I would not say anything, so people can continue to seethe with their hate and negativity. Funny how people thing celebrities owe them something.

    I miss the old days when twitter, facebook, and all that kind of shît didn’t exist. And LOL @ people who expect the “truth”… The truth about what ? Is this September 11 attacks or the Kennedy assassination ? SMH

  • Eli Pinilla

    I been tryin to tell yall……These people want this sh*t to go away. Ain’t nobody going to jail. Ain’t nobody gettin sued. The leaker will keep all that money…..I respect jay more for not taking that route either. You got caught up like the rest of them learn and move on..

    • johnblacksad

      Nah… the leaker getting sued by the hotel for breaching contract and giving the tape to TMZ… Jay can’t do nothing for him even if he wanted to.

      There’s no way they’re not gonna make an example out of him…

      • Eli Pinilla

        Ain’t shit gonna happen to her. She got fired. Even if the hotel sued, and they get her on breach of non disclosure, the penalty ain’t nowhere near no 250k….50-60k at most….kanye suing the owner of youtube and he won’t get that much…..and people been leaking shit forever. People woulda been sued and examples woulda been made a long time ago. Look at the Donald Sterling situation. Dmx. Kate moss. Ray rice…’s too many. So yea, they can do what they want, but the penalty ain’t no Damn 250k.

      • Dubz

        Them lawyer fee’s might get pretty high.

      • Eli Pinilla

        Not really. If you getting sued, and you not fighting it, then it’s not really that much. A few stacks. She guilty, so she gonna settle…..They can go mike tyson hard and it won’t run her anywhere near 250k.

      • Phibes

        The IRS will be coming for their cut. And it will be a health cut,almost half because of the capitol gains tax .

      • Eli Pinilla

        250k is 36%. With 6.85 new york tax. That’s still around 150k clean after taxes…..she got off. It don’t matter how much they try to get her for, she got of clean….also, assuming that job was around 20-40k a year, she will still maybe come out with 200k after everything’s said and done.

      • Phibes

        150 & no job! I’ll take the job, thanks. That’s no money.Not to mention a tarnished work record. That’s not clean bro! That 150 will be gone before the year is out.

      • DJ Rebelion

        lol 150k you can move and get another job wtf? lmao

      • Phibes

        HELLO!!!!!! Your work record travels with you bro.

      • DJ Rebelion

        Hello!!!!! If an Ex-Con can get a job I’m sure she can. 150k she could also start her own business!!! Hello!!!

      • Phibes

        So do you think tarnishing your good name is worth 150K?

      • Eli Pinilla

        Bro, it’s not that serious. She didn’t commit a felony. She doesn’t have to register as a sex offender or nothing like that. She worked security at a hotel. She can take that 250 and start a business or take a job doing some other sh*t. We don’t even know her name or what she looks like…..

      • Phibes

        When her case begins with the hotel all that will be public knowledge.

      • Eli Pinilla

        I don’t believe it’s going to be public. The only reason the hotel is handling it the way they are is cuz of how public this got. Now that jay and them want it to go away, the hotel will move on. And if they do pursue this, it’s gonna be done in the background. Only cuz jay and them want this to go away and them making every move they do public will only make it worse for them and keep the story going which is what the hotel, jay, bay, and Solange don’t want…just my opinion though…we don’t really know. I could be completely wrong and Jay gonna have the chick sent to guantanamo lol

      • Phibes

        Respect bro…only time will tell.

      • DJ Rebelion

        I don’t believe I said anything of the sort. I believe I stated she could still work or start her own business. You’re hating which is understandable the world is filled with those. She saw an opportunity and she took it. Jay and B are rich they are above alright financially. I could care less about this girl improving her financial situation. Is it right? I don’t know? Is it right to give someone 25 years to life in jail then turn around and bomb people in another country and give medals? This situation is so minor it’s funny to me.

      • Phibes

        Hatting? Why it got to be hate. I just asked you a question. Lol 150K is not allot of money if your looking at the big picture.
        And for the record I have my own business which employees 12 workers. I personally paid close to 6 figures in taxes last year so i don’t have to hate. Thank you very much!

      • DJ Rebelion

        You where hating which is cool. If you started with 12 employees and your first year you invested over 150k in your business that’s amazing bro keep pushing. 150k isn’t a lot of money but it is enough to start a small business. I don’t feel sorry for Jay B or S because if they weren’t fighting in the elevator non of this would have happened.

      • Phibes

        No hate here. It’s crazy when someone says something that doesn’t co-inside with another persons opinion it’s called hate. Lol

        Bottom line I just think it’s stupid to take short money that will cause you problems in the long run. And no I didn’t start with 12 employees I had 2. .And I had allot more investment capitol than 150K.

      • rocnation30

        it has nothin to do with jay or b …the hotel is taking her to civil court and she got fired….civil court could order her to give every dime back to the hotel….THEN WHAT???

      • Phibes

        So true bro. Some people just don’t get it. All money,no matter the amount isn’t good money. But what do I know…Lol

      • DJ Rebelion

        If she’s smart she’ll take that 150k or however much money she got and get the hell out of this country.

      • Guest

        150k is enough to get going remember everybody ideas are not the same. Like he said she can find work easy in different field or out the state.

      • Phibes

        Yall keep saying start your own business like it’s easy or it’s something she wants to do. It may be enough to start you off in a business,but who’s to say this person has the drive or determination. to do such a thing. But I guess only time will tell.Everyone doesn’t have it in them to do that.In fact i would say most are dreamers & only a handful are doers.Either way , Respect!

      • Eli Pinilla

        To each his own. 150k is what you make it. She felt like taking that risk and she got paid for it. We can speculate about how much they gonna sue her for and what lawyer fees are gonna be. But as of right now she has 250k and enough time to get a new job before her face is thrown all over tv and they find out who she is…. plus, she prolly did that shit not giving a f*ck about that job anyways….

      • rocnation30

        she got fired and they are taking the leaker to civil court

    Solange bout to drop that “Elevator” album now.

  • Freezamon

    The leaker got paid….”Can’t knock the hustle”….Jay-Z

    • Actually the “leaker” is about to pay the hotel. The hotel is taking legal action due to the lost business they will receive once Beyonce and Jigga spread the word about their inability to keep certain things private. They lost mad loot behind this. That little TMZ check will simply be transferred to lawyers and the hotel. The leaker lost!

      • Flight_91

        Not really..TMZ gone pay for the leaker’s fees and have their legal team working with him..So if he gets to keep his 250k and have TMZ pay his legal tab..while having A top notch team on his case?…the leaker wins..

      • Weedras

        That’s a big “IF” right there…

  • Q.

    The spin machine is in high gear. Obviously, all is not well. But you can tell from the statement they have top-shelf PR (as expected). Let the speculation proceed.

    Black people can learn alot from this approach to resolving our own BS….along with getting married and committing to one another more often. We don’t belong in jail. We can raise our children together mother and father in the same home. We can live and grow in civil communities controlled by us. We are not n*ggaz as we sadly perpetuate this to the world. The widespread n*gga mindset is a plague to black people around the world but we can get through it just like the Carter’s can. You don’t have to be rich to forgive each other.
